East Anglian based crop sprayer designers and manufacturers, Landquip, have unvieled their new range of steering axle trailed sprayers, INTRAC.
The range features include the firm’s Genius CAN-Bus electronic system, which is used to control the twin ram auto-steering system which the driver can quickly override for manual operation or engage crab steer.
Hydraulic suspension and S cam brakes are standard on the 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 litres capacity sprayers. The track width of the 13-tonne rated axles can be altered from 1.8m to 2.0m.
The self-priming centrifugal pump is powered hydraulically and has a capacity of 700 litres per minute. Richard Abbot, of Landquip, says this ensures fast fill times and high volume spraying at pressures of up to 7 Bar.
Alu-light booms spanning up to 36m wide come with stainless steel recirculating spraylines and multi-head nozzle bodies. Sequential switching of up to 11 boom sections is standard and there is the option of GPS-controlled automatic section control.
The operator controls and hand-wash facility are located beside the fold-down stainless steel induction hopper which has a new rotating can wash head.
Prices start from £47,000.
